Artist Fuller will be unveiling his latest cartographical masterpiece, London Town, on Thursday 17th September at the St Pancras Clock Tower.

About

London Town is a meticulously drawn map of Fuller’s experience of London, which has taken an astonishing 10 years to complete. The work will be suspended in front of the main window of the Clock Tower for visitors to observe closely and relate to the surrounding views of the City. 

In London Town, the city is instantly recognisable, not by the obvious landmarks, but by the hedonistic, enchanting character of the metropolis that Fuller communicates. As the artist describes, ‘London was my playground, my back yard,’ when creating this piece. References to Fuller’s own personal experiences and memories within the city are present, as well as comments on contemporary society, with drones and speed cameras peeking out from the intensely detailed drawing.  

This work is a result of Fuller’s project, Fuller Maps, which has seen him drawing intricate maps that narrate and observe the identity of places. He has previously completed a map of Bristol, which took 4 years to create, and a drawing of the Isle of Purbeck. Fuller draws these impressionistic ‘mind maps’ of places where he has lived, a practice he describes as ‘making a collection of cartographical love letters.’ 

Both maps will be featured in a new book from Gestalten to be released mid September entitled Mind the Map.

For the unveiling of London Town, visitors will be invited to take part in deciphering different areas of the city whilst poring over the map. Fuller will provide his own artistic ‘key’ for viewers, to open and encourage a dialogue with the work.  This event will also be a rare opportunity to track the development of an artist over the past 10 years within just one work.
